Just curious, aren't these the same?

Puzzle Cube (easy print no support)

Yes they are the same thing. I designed this puzzle back in 2009 but recently posted a video on my instagram account showing me mixing and matching pieces from different versions of it made from different fancy materials. Here is a link to that video:

Anyhow that video went viral and within a day or two a low-res copy of it was running on the front page of reddit, but with no credit given to me as the designer of the puzzle or the creator of the video. The person who has that other version of this puzzle on thingiverse (which ironically is also going viral right now) saw the reddit post and reverse engineered the shape of the pieces in order to create his own version of the puzzle which he posted a video of on his own instagram page and also uploaded the files here on Thingiverse. This all happened within a matter of about 48 hours. Once I saw his files here on this website I contacted him and asked if he would please give me credit for the design, so you will notice that he has a note at the bottom of his summary info pointing back to my instagram page.

Ah!! Wow!!! That is a very cool story. I am glad he gave you credit... I will have to go back and find it just so I can stop thinking about it. Unfortunately there are a lot of people out there that like to claim other's ideas their own.

Thanks for taking the time to explain!! We are having lots of fun here at work, with your puzzles I printed out. Next will be the star one! Take care and keep them coming!!!!
